Bug#347264: Incorrect *Manufacturer string

Package: hplip-ppds
Version: 0.9.7-4

hplip-ppds package incorrectly uses *Manufacturer: "HP (HPLIP)" inside PPDs.
According to the Adobe PPD Specification v4.3 the correct *Manufacturer string should be "HP" (case sensitive).
The Adobe PPD Specification is located at http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/ps/5003.PPD_Spec_v4.3.pdf.

This would allow GUI tools to make a classification of PPDs by unique manufacturer.
Please also read the PPD File Structure Specification I wrote, it can be found at http://wiki.debian.org/PpdFileStructureSpecification.
